On Feb 12th and 13th, I showed a couple from Turkey around the city.
I welcomed them at the platform of Shinkansen at JR Kyoto station.
The first day's itinerary is as follows
Tenryuji temple ( zen temple, listed as World heritage site )
Tempura lunch at Shijo
Nishiki food market
Kimono shop and Tenugui shop
The second day
meeting at their Japanese classic ryokan,
The oldest Soba restaurant in Kyoto
walking along Sannenzaka
shopping ( Kiyomizu pottery )
sending back to their ryokan.
They enjoyed the tea ceremony during the tours.
At the tea shop, you can enjoy the right way of tea ceremony there.
That tea ceremony is conducted on a private basis. So you can fully enjoy it.
You are taught how to enter the room through the window like square entrance.
Of course you will make tea and serve it
Sorry, it is difficult to focus on her while walking so fast.
At Gion, if you are lucky, you can witness a geiko ( geisha in Kyoto ) and Maiko ( an apprentice of geiko ) listening to the story of Gion by me!!
I introduced Kobe beef restaurant in Gion and They enjoyed the dinner on the second night in Kyoto.
